Community Psychology in Global Perspective is a peer-reviewed journal devoted to research, theory and intervention, and review articles exploring human interactions in community settings across the globe. Its special focus is on making explicit the ways in which culture acts as a framework organizing and guiding our experiences, utilizing ecological perspectives to enhance our understanding and promotion of individual and community well-being, and advancing work aimed at the creation of positive social change and social justice.

The journal is international in scope, reflecting the main concerns of social scientists and community practitioners worldwide. Community Psychology in Global Perspective welcomes contributions from a variety of theoretical approaches across disciplines (psychology, sociology, political sciences, urban planning, social work and others), although it especially encourages submissions of field-based, culturally situated research and intervention.

The content of the journal includes:
Research articles that report empirical qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods studies relevant to community psychology theory, method, and practice. The focus on qualitative research within a psychological frame will be a specific innovative contribution to the social science research.
Review articles that survey theoretical developments or topics of major interest.
Practice issues that present brief reports by practitioners or action researchers, which describe interesting developments and interventions or which address matters of professional and public relevance.
